The smallest beast. Going. Maybe not Just. Leaving a trail. Dividing space. Making a path. Bringing a bit of fresh air to an old piece of patchwork. Transforming it into a place to breathe.
The slowest stitch. Slower than even the slowest slow stitch. Splitting hairs I call it. A split backstitch using one thread. Takes forever because you add row after row and and no one might even notice. But it gives you time to consider and shape your vision.
Eventually. Evidence of how we keep at it.
I'm not particularly focused lately. I'm just letting that play out. More walking than thinking. More going than explaining. I need a Wordless Weekend of Willful Wandering. Mixed with Day Dreaming. Take care.
It has been easier for me just to continue. Continue some small journeys past, rather then start something new. I am feeling better now, now realizing how not well I was for the past weeks. And this has spaced me out. The reflecting on that. Health. Wellness. Age. What's important.
This one above, all the components from the original Sun Moon Stars workshop, now available through Feel Free. I pulled them together and framed them with more cloth. Now NeedleChanting (how I express slow stitching) my way through.
I'm looking at both of these together. The newer one on the right. Looking. Noticing the similarity in color pallette. Looking for other common senses. Like floating. I will work on the both, back and forth until I can bring my selves together.
